fine print: "23.8% alc/vol"
Nope. Keel vodka is 23.8% alcohol by volume. Standard vodkas (or any spirits for that matter) are 40% alcohol. So while Keel may have roughly 60% of the calories of other vodkas, it also consists of just 60% of the alcohol.
Rather than buying a bottle of Keel (or any other "light" liquors, I hate to pick on just them) here's my recommendation:
Purchase something like Stoli instead for basically the same price. Invite me over. I'll drink 2/5ths of it, then fill the bottle up with water for you. Voila, you'll have the same thing! Back when you were in high school your parents were probably drinking Keel from their liquor cabinet without even knowing!
Another option if you'd like to save yourself some money, just mix your vodka-tonics with about an ounce of something else rather than 1.5 oz of Keel. Your drinks will taste the same, you'll still get an equal buzz, and you're bottle will last 40% longer!
